Consultation at Summer Camp

Gateways is pleased to introduce the opportunity for camp settings to receive support, consultation, and collaboration on campers’ behavioral challenges and needs (for all ages).  Below are two options for camp settings to consider for this summer or book ahead for any point next summer, which can be used either on their own or as a package.

Camper-Specific Consultation

Have a specific camper who is struggling to engage in expected behavior?  Is the team worried about future challenging behavior from this camper? Is a family reaching out because they are worried their child is not having the camp experience they expected?  Let us partner with you in identifying strategies and supports to help them experience camp in a positive and meaningful way.

Cost: $185 per hour of consultation

Camp Counselor and Staff-Wide Training Sessions

Kick off your summer on the right foot with a staff-wide training session focusing on basic strategies and supports to prevent and address challenging behavior in the camp setting.  Counselors and staff will learn about specific interventions that can minimize challenging behavior and help campers successfully navigate camp and have positive interactions with peers and the camp community. 

Cost: $500
